Spring Cross Country Information
On Tuesday, May 7th, our Grades 1-8s will be attending the Catholic Youth Organization (C.Y.O.) Spring Cross Country Meet at Marydale Park in Binbrook. We will be travelling together on a school bus to the event. Once your child has signed up for the event and paid, should they drop out for whatever reason or choose to arrange alternate transportation, we will unfortunately not be able to refund the money, as the cost is determined based on the initial number of students registered for the event. If you choose to take your child/children home after the race, you MUST inform a staff member who will sign them out. If your child is leaving with another family, you will need to send a note to the office PRIOR to the day of the event. Under NO circumstance can your child leave with another family if you have not already informed the office. Payment for the cross country meet must be paid through School Cash Online by Friday, May 3rd.
All parents are welcome to come to Marydale Park (5999 Chippewa Rd E, Mount Hope, ON L0R 1W0) for their child’s race. Please be aware that there is a $5.00 charge per car to enter the park.
Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. It does get windy in the open fields, so bring a warm jacket and dress in layers. Be sure to provide proper footwear and clothing for running. Students are asked to wear their spirit shirts to the event. Also, remember to pack sunscreen, a hat, a raincoat (if necessary), water, and whatever else is warranted for the weather that day. The students will still run if it is raining, but they will not run if there is lightning.
Attached to this posting is the schedule for the day and the trip permission form. Payment must be received and permission forms returned by Friday, May 3rd.
Thank you, The Cross Country Coaches
